Life gives you lemons….


Make a card!  What else did you expect??!!

So, the story behind this is SU has just started their annual Sale-A-Bration promotion.  And, for every $50 you spend. you get a free stamp set….  WELL.  Every year, just before this comes around, one of my upline hosts a SAB swap.  And, I like to participate.  However, this year, I didn’t even get a chance to look at the stamp sets before I signed up for the swap because it was in the thick of Christmas Crafting (which for me, is from November until Dec 25 in the wee hours in the morning…)  So!  I just chose a set based on the name.  And, this set is called “A Happy Thing”.




Lemons for me are a very happy thing!  I have a lemon tree that I just LOVE.  Fresh lemonade is one of my favorites.  Along with lemon squares, lemon butter, Lemon brownies…  I have a whole pinterest board devoted to it.  This lemon was fun to color with our blendabilities (Stampin’ Up version of copics). markers… cause you can shade them… and you don’t get those UGLY marker lines, but get the saturation you want that you can’t get with pencils…  I’m learning the blendabilities.  And, cannot figure out where they’ve been all my life.  Coincidentally, you can choose some of the blendabilities sets as the free item for SAB as well…

Anyway, if you are interested in learning how to get some SAB sets of your own, contact me!!  It can be a happy thing for you too!
